And so all good things must end, farewell Crooked Tree, Belize, thanks for a wonderful week.
Off to the airport shortly, and not looking forward to heading back to the record breaking cold of the north. Even filtered down here to the tropics.
Took my last hike through this quaint little village, which I have come to know, and love. Took a little detour along the Stiles Thomas Trail, which runs along the back yards of some of the local properties before it turns toward the lagoon. I loved walking it, and didn’t get a chance to post and photos, and it was especially pleasant in the morning. saw a lot of birds and what I thought looked like a robin.
Walked back into town and wanted to get a photo of the causeway across the lagoon. . It is relatively new, having been built in 1984. Prior to that time the only way to access the village was by boat. Denver, one of the staff, grew up in the village, and recalls his happy memories of boating on the Belize River to Belize City with his dad. Must have been a simpler, and happier time. The village is still a warm community of folks who welcome visitors to enjoy there laid back life style and natural beauty. I will miss this place, but cherish the memories and new experiences. . Here is a link to some of the photos I uploaded on my Flicker site. https://flic.kr/s/aHsk838FNj
And can’t live Belize without saying thanks to Verna, Denver and the pleasant staff at the Bird’s Eye View Lodge. They were so friendly and accommodating. Loved the hearty meals they prepared, the tortilla soup was unique and awesome last night. I would highly recommend this lovely place on the Crooked Tree lagoon. Another wonderful place on this beautiful planet. The world is filled with them, including your own back yard. Well time to go. See you in the cold and ice of the frozen north.
